Silicon Image Announces SiI9381A Dual-mode MHL and HDMI Port Processor
Silicon Image announced SiI9381A dual-mode MHL™ and HDMI® port processor designed into Toshiba’s new MHL-enabled DTVs, which will be initially rolled out in Australia. MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) technology enables consumers to view and share HD content from mobile devices to DTVs via a direct cable connection. Toshiba’s new Regza WL800A DTV model is available in 46” and 55” full HD screen sizes, and supports 1080p resolution and two channels of digital audio through MHL technology. The introduction of the latest Regza WL800A DTVs complements the growing MHL product ecosystem of smartphones, tablets and adapters.
MHL technology is a new HD audio/video connectivity standard that enables a mobile device to transmit 1080p uncompressed video with up to eight channels of digital audio, while also supporting HDCP content protection, over five pins. In addition, MHL-enabled DTVs and displays provide power to the mobile device when connected, ensuring that the phone battery is charged and ready to use even after viewing a full-length feature movie. Consumers are also able to control MHL-enabled mobile devices using the existing DTV remote.
Silicon Image’s port processors provide the latest connectivity and performance features to enhance the consumer’s connected HD experience.
